Some seem to want lower standards for basketball success.Why...I don't know. OSU has championship teams on a regular basis in other sports...yet basketball has always gotten a pass.Being better than those who proceed you is no cause for passing out multi million dollar paychecks every year in my opinion.

Why should fans care about the basketball program....when the head of Athletic Department does not care.Multi million dollar participation trophies are being handed out year after year.

Just when you think the OP will stop this endless player pay rant...he starts again.Consider all the players who never contribute to the teams success.They never start...they play a few minutes in a few games. They are a dollar drag on the bottom line...yet they get all the benefits of star players and the school covers these non contributors expenses.Yet the school should pay them for not generating revenue ? In the RW these people would be fired for not contributing.But not when they have a scholarship.

OP are you ready to give schools the right to fire players for non performance ...or are you saying this is a one way street with players given money and no responsibilities to generate revenue  ?

MR left out the costs of the football coaches,trainers uniforms and 24/7 use of the facilities.

Urban took teams that had poor attendance...gave them great coaching and attendance grew.BB teams that have performed at OSU have drawn large crowds. Matta's teams of the last few years have proven that poor performance is rewarded with low attendance.What is not to understand ?

I frankly don't get this earning the "trust" speak. The OSU offense has under performed the last two years. JT was a significant part of that. HE UNDER PERFORMED(some use the words regressed). Now we have to sell him on new coaches that Meyer brings in to fix things ?

Do new CEO's that come unto a company have to sell themselves to their employees ?

I think there should be an open competition. The problem is the qb's wearing black jerseys won't easily reveal how they are going to perform against ranked defenses.

JT should win the competition when the tests are not live.In game, late in the season, against Penn State,MSU,Michigan is a little late to find out we haven't progressed.
